I have always loved powers pub and Angela but apparently we are only interested in groups that show up now. I was embarrassed to not be part of the in crowd and do not want to ever be a part of it or Angela. Sorry Pawtucket village but you suck. I think I am moving. So embarrassed Sorry

Entertainment was outstanding, Jazzy Legs was playing. But do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else before. Get here around 8:30, as it fills up around 9 and is small. I like the club style seating. Try the locally brewed bears the waitress recommends. She was spot on.

I've been to Powers a couple of times recently, and happy with both. Some changes have added interesting art to the excellent food and drink; Powers now has a very sophisticated while friendly atmosphere to it. (Full disclosure: two of my photographs are on display). At the bar, there are some very tasty draft beers and a lineup of creative... More

Wondering what happened to this place. Brought a friend visiting Providence for the first time. I thought we could show her Pawtuxet Village and a little gem called Powers Pub. What we got was a smile-less, unwelcoming bartender who made our drinks with little or no acknowledgement. It was a Saturday night, a dozen people in the place should have... More

We visit Powers often. On our recent visit, we shared the Barbeque Pulled Pork Pizza. It was flavorful and perfectly cooked. For a small bar, Powers has a good variety of beers, and the bartender is fast and very good at her job. There is live entertainment most nights, and a Pub Quiz contest on Mondays.

Description
Great little pub with live entertainment and delicious food. It opened a few years ago as a bar only, but in the last year, they've hired a professional chef, renovated the kitchen, and added lots of great menu items. The shrimp quesadilla and margarita pizza are my favorites.
